Families will be given a list of items to search for, which are hidden throughout the museum, garden, and historic house. The number one rule for the hunt is, "find it with your eyes, not your hands". Kids will have fun while learning about the Noah Webster House and everyday life in colonial West Hartford. Every child who completes the hunt will get a prize. No registration is required, but families should arrive no later than 3:30 p.m. to complete the hunt.
